@inproceedings{Hashizume2021MeasurementinducedPT, title={Measurement-induced phase transitions in sparse nonlocal scramblers}, author={Tomohiro Hashizume and Gregory S. Bentsen and Andrew J. Daley}, year={2021} }

Measurement-induced phase transitions arise due to a competition between the scrambling of quantum information in a many-body system and local measurements. In this work we investigate these transitions in different classes of fast scramblers, systems that scramble quantum information as quickly as is conjectured to be possible – on a timescale proportional to the logarithm of the system size. In particular, we consider sets of deterministic sparse couplings that naturally interpolate between… Expand
